Meet MaryLee Trettenero of Boston Intuitive in Charlestown

Today we’d like to introduce you to MaryLee Trettenero.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Being highly intuitive runs in my family. My mother and grandmother always knew things ahead of time. My dad was conservative. My mom was psychic. I grew up in a household that both embraced psychic interests and forbid them. I was the daydreamer amongst my 5 siblings and not at all interested school. Sometimes, when I studied for exams, I only studied what I intuitively thought would be on the test and I usually got A’s and B+’s. I never did figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. The only thing I knew for sure was- I didn’t fit in. In college, I studied psychology and philosophy because there were no psychic schools at that time. At 24, I tried to walk a more traditional path and began working for Westin Hotels. I enjoyed the hotel business. The work was exciting and fun, but as I discovered later on, the most important thing was that it provided me endless opportunities to practice using intuition with everyday decisions. My ten year career encompassed hotels in Chicago, New York and Boston. At the same time, my peculiar interest in everything psychic continued and I even began doing psychic readings for family and friends. I left the hotel industry in 1990 to work in small business and prepare to launch a new career as a professional psychic. In 1995, I opened a private practice in Charlestown as a business intuitive and never looked back.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The transition from hotelier to professional psychic was challenging. I had been working at large hotels with 800 employees and lots of resources. When I left – it was only me. I also had a mortgage based on my hotel salary so it was stressful to bring in enough money while on a high learning curve working for myself.

Another challenging part, which continues to this day, is being able to balance being in an altered state (in order to give readings) with the practical tasks and clarity needed to run a business. Like all psychics, I continually struggle with being centered and grounded.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Boston Intuitive – what should we know?
My company is Boston Intuitive. I provide psychic intuitive and psychic medium readings for individuals and groups. I, also, do pet readings by phone and SKYPE. I. offer space clearings to revitalize the energy in homes and offices, and Reiki healing sessions in my home. I’m the author of a paranormal book about The Battle of Bunker Hill. And have a small ghost tour company and run tours in mid-September to Halloween. My reading specialty is in providing guidance to people who find themselves at a crossroads in life and need to make major life decisions. I don’t make decision for you. I provide insights into what’s going on in your life so that you can make optimal decisions on your behalf. What I’m most proud of is being in service to my clients and helping people to heal. I am also proud of working with the spirit world and providing messages from your loved ones on the Other Side.

For intuitive sessions, I designed my sessions so that at least half the time we spend on why you came to see me in the first place. My goal for each reading is that clients leave with more clarity into themselves, their motives, and the situations they face. If someone is feeling stuck, I try to help that person feel more empowered and not so bogged down with same old, same old. What sets me apart from others in my field is that I’m laser focused on my client’s needs. I don’t try to predict the future. Besides, I feel the future is dynamic. It’s like a moving target. You create your future by the decisions that you make today. I try to provide insights that help you make the best decisions for you.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
A lot of people deserve credit for my success as a psychic. My mom for all her early encouragement and my dad for his work ethic. Lynn Robinson was one of my early mentors and she helped me to see what was possible with a private practice. I’ve had many, many teachers in mediumship training mostly from Spiritualist churches here in the US and in England. I am very fortunate to have trained with some of the best mediums in the world today. The two most influential mediumship mentors were Reverend Brenda Lawrence and Reverend Rita Berkowitz, John Holland, who is a leader in our field, is a friend and has been a great help with my career. I also have a wonderful community of psychics and mediums whom I call friends. We support each other and work together when we can.
